Red Hot Mama:
Ryan Ludwick laying off a ball outside.Last game
The Reds were winners again yesterday, taking down the Padres 3-7. Mike Leake did the starting for the team and had a good outing: 1 run on 5 hits in 6.0 innings.
Ryan Ludwick came through big time with a 3-run homer in the seventh inning to break the 1-1 tie and give the Reds a lead they wouldn’t lose. Joey Votto also his a home run to provide some padding and something us to talk about.
Today the Reds host the Royals at 4:05 p.m. Mat Latos will be taking his turn at last-chance-to-rock-spring training.

The Red Hot Family is taking a vacation! We’re heading to that traditional spring break destination of London, England. Damn the luck that spring break is falling on the week of Opening Day and Opening Night, which has been our favorite tradition for the last 2 years.
I don’t even know if they get ESPN across the pond, let alone Fox Sports Ohio, so we’ve bribed a couple guest bloggers with t...

Like all other major league teams, questions abound for the Cincinnati Reds as the team prepares to embark upon its 2013 season. Who’s going to produce, how’s the bullpen going to hold up, how is the competition going to set up in the National League Central and so on and so forth. But all speculation may be for naught now, because according to one Reds fan, a pancake he recently...
We can now count the number of days left until Opening Day by using one hand. However, Cincinnati has yet to finalize their 25-man roster.
They took a step closer on Wednesday by trimming the roster size down to 34. Southpaw Wilkin De La Rosa and right-handed pitcher Clay Hensley were given pink slips this morning and were re-assigned to the minor league camp.
De La Rosa...
Slowly but surely, day-by-day, the ESPN Baseball Tonight crew has been unveiling its rankings for the top 500 players in Major League Baseball for 2013. The series began on March 20 and concluded on Friday, with the unveiling of the top 10 players.
As you might imagine, several Reds made the cut. After all, there are only so many active MLB players they can choose from. And why...
Fans in Taiwan came out in force to see the newest member of the RDA Rhinos, Manny Ramirez, make his debut Wednesday.
These two ladies marked the occasion with this special sign in support of the washed up slugger.

As CBS Sports’ Dayn Perry points out, and dug up from CBS archives, the photo, if you haven’t noticed, is not Manny Ramirez. It’s Johnny...
The Reds offered Miguel Olivo $100,000 to report to Louisville as part of the new CBA for players with his experience level coming off of a MLB deal the year before. He has not yet decided whether he will accept it, but given that he is hitting .167 this spring, I doubt there is an offer out there for a big league deal. With that said, he may see that the Reds have two pretty good...
We are coming down the home stretch of spring training, folks. It's been a long, cold offseason, but the start of the regular season is a mere handful of days away.
The Reds will play host to the Padres at Goodyear Ballpark later this afternoon before welcoming the Royals to town on Thursday. They will wrap up their spring slate with a visit to Chase Field for a date with...
This place will soon come alive with the sounds of summer.
After months of kicking around aimlessly through the cold months of winter, baseball fans can finally rejoice - the season is here! With that, our esteemed group of Redlegs Review writers convene for a joyous edition of the RR Roundtable. This week, Scott Eddy (@scotte97) returns as moderator and is joined by Jimmi...
Bronson Arroyo has won 115 games in the past nine seasons. He’s also come up big in the postseason. But none of his success has come thanks to overpowering stuff.
The Cincinnati Reds’ right-hander is a craftsman. His fastball rarely reaches 90 mph, and his breaking pitches are more varied than they are exceptional. His strengths are deception and guile. Featuring a high leg kick...
Same starting five in the rotation. Same back end of the bullpen. Same starting lineup, except for one spot.
On the surface, not much has changed with the Cincinnati Reds, and that's exactly how they wanted it. The NL Central division champions have brought their team back virtually intact for another run at their elusive goal.
Another division title is only an initial goal...
Manny Ramirez is officially back on the diamond, folks.
Unable to land a job (or even a spring training invite) with a major league club, Ramirez has landed in Taiwan, inking a deal with the EDA Rhinos. However, the local fans may apparently want to acclimate themselves with their new star.
According to Busted Coverage, Ramirez’s Wednesday debut was nothing short of a circus, as...

Former MLB superstar Manny Ramirez made his home debut with the EDA Rhinos of the Chinese Baseball League Wednesday night. He is by far the biggest name to ever play in the league. Fans throughout the stadium made signs supporting Manny, but one has stuck out from the rest.

MESA, Ariz. (AP) -- Johnny Cueto pitched six shutout innings in a smooth warmup for opening day and Todd Fraizer homered to send the Cincinnati Reds to an 11-1 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday night.
Cubs starter Jeff Samardzija also had a good night in his final outing before the season opener. He gave up one run and five hits in five innings, striking out five.
Donald Lutz slugged a three-run home run to cap a nine-run 9th, as the Cincinnati Reds drubbed the Cubs 11-1 in Cactus League action this evening at Dwight Patterson Field at HoHoKam Park in Mesa, AZ.

We continue our MLB previews today by moving into the Central divisions, beginning with the NL.
